Fundraising 2021: Help us bring science, technology, engineering and mathematics concepts, activities, and hands-on experience to at risk girls in the remote region of Donoso, Panama. Check it out below:

The Spectrogram to the LEFT and the table BELOW are an example of the type of data we are collecting on Aotus zonalis, the Panamanian Night-Monkey. This type of data ("Bioacoustical") can help us learn not only about communication but also the complexity of communication the Night-Monkeys utilize. This can better inform our understanding of this species social structures and communication overall. Additionally, we are able to identify the presence of other individuals collected on video from camera traps but may not be in view.

Where & What?

The Panamanian Night-Monkey (Aotus zonalis) is a nocturnal primate that is very difficult to observe. Very little data about this species taxonomy, breeding biology, life history and ecology has been collected. Additionally, because of its arboreal/nocturnal nature, it can be very difficult to study. Our Director of Mammology, Melva Olmos, has been awarded initial funds to calculate the population of Aotus zonalis along a gradient of human dominated landscape & areas abutting large tracts of forest or protected areas in Coclé Province. This study will help our organization add to the growing research on threats to this species in Panamá and in the development of a conservation plan in non-protected areas.
